Andy Robertson reveals he wants to retire at Liverpool, tells of Klopp being like ‘dad’ and picks his player of season – The Sun

ANDY ROBERTSON has revealed he wants to retire at Liverpool after Jurgen Klopp's side sealed their first league title in 30 years.

Chelsea's 2-1 win over Man City last night meant the Anfield club were crowned Premier League champions for the first time.

And in a chat with talkSPORT's Jim White, Robertson confirmed his future plans – while commenting on how Klopp had been like a dad to him.

Scotland left-back Robertson, 26, was asked about seeing out the rest of his career at Liverpool.

The former Celtic reject said: "That’s my plan.

"Whether I’m good enough at 33 or 34 to continue to do that, we’ll wait and see.

"But I don’t want to go anywhere, this club is so special to me in a short space or time. My family love it, I love it and I don’t want to go anywhere else.

"There’s no better team in the world just now than Liverpool and why would any of us want to leave?

"We’ve got a young squad and we’ve got to be looking at the next five years to try and add more and more trophies.

"To start with the big two is always good and it gives us the freedom to go and add to it now, because the feeling of being champions is amazing and we don’t want it to be a one-off, we want that all the time.

"That’s what will drive us forward next season and the seasons after."

Manager Klopp was reduced to tears as he dedicated Liverpool's historic title to club legends Sir Kenny Dalglish and Steven Gerrard.

The German boss – who danced the night away celebrating – has built an unshakeable bond with his players and Robertson paid tribute to that.

He said: "He’s like a father figure, he is the dad to all of us when we’re away.

"We can have a laugh with him but he knows when to get the lads going, he knows when you motivate us and how to motivate us.

"I know we didn’t win the title by playing a game, but the performance against Crystal Palace shows that.

"It was an unbelievable performance behind closed doors, we were superb, and if that’s the last game to become champions then it was definitely well deserved from that performance."
